It-was – PADRE’S BIRTHDAY, and him we do cherish:🤗🤗

“HEAVENLY PROMISE!” a poem a.k.a.: “Padre Beto’s Birthday Surprise-Reminder!” Sunday 07/15/18

Well, I attended the party at The Cath-o-lic Parish!

It-was – PADRE’S BIRTHDAY, and him we do cherish:

So, we ate and gave hugs and some smiles for each friend,

We had wonderful food! It was good to the end!

But, when-it-got-finished, clean-up was a deal,

And only a few of the diners did “kneel,”

And clean up the food, move the tables and such,

And Padre and I worked too late, pretty much,

And sweating and panting, we-had-worked for our fare,

And Padre said: “IN-HEAVEN (pause) THERE’S-NO-CLEAN-UP

OR CARE!”

“But, Padre,” I reminded; “We stand in THE GATES,

Right NOW; this IS Heaven – we’ve foil-ed The Fates!

WE ALREADY DIED – AND THIS!? OUR REWARD!

Don’t you remember? You’re ONE with The Lord!

And, whenever [IT] appeared, you died ON THE SPOT,

And NOW you’re in Heaven (Padre) – you know – you’ve been caught,

Don’t imagine there’s MORE – better-deals-in-a-while,

YOU MAY LIVE FOREVER, SO PUT ON THAT SMILE;

We’ve sweated and toiled and had a good meal,

That’s-life HERE IN HEAVEN, so how do you feel?”

And The Padre explained, as I drove out of sight,

“WHAT A BANQUET, LORD JESUS; IT’S HEAVEN, ALL RIGHT!” 🙂

fin. ❤

P. S.: SO – if we knew this was Heaven and we’d made it, / Wouldn’t depression be something less hated? / Wouldn’t we figure, if-we-were-feeling-a-bit-”blue,” / That-it-was just The Spirit of Jesus come due?! / ‘Cause He was a man of sorrows and tears, / BUT-He-was-always-in-Heaven – FREE FROM ALL FEARS! ❤
